Ace of Spades HQ, a conservative blog, says Mr Williams was engaging in "an age-old reportorial practice called lying to advance an agenda".
"The agenda here was dressing up a soft, delicate little boy into a the sort of iron-stubbled man who looks like he belongs on a battlefield," Ace writes.
Vety similar to the exploitation of sensitive or topical issues used by racists to further their agenda: "lying to advance an agenda".
Incidentally, this comment concluded that article:
As it turns out, the helicopter Brian Williams was in didn't crash and burn. His professional reputation, on the other hand, may not be so lucky.
Perhaps the analogy is equally appropriate to those who exploit issues to further their agenda.
When it's obviously demonstrated that was their intention, perhaps their integrity and reputation has crashed and burned.
The most important persuasion tool you have in your entire arsenal is integrity.
Incidentally, my apologies to those who are bored and ****ed off with the constant racially relevant posts.
BUT the racially offensive posters continue to be racially offensive.
Now by any standards, if the racially offensive comments continue (including encouragement and support) it's absolutely right and proper that objections to those racially offensive comments must be allowed to continue.
Imagine any sensible reasonable person standing in judgement:
On the one hand there are racists arguing that they should be allowed to continue posting racially offensive comments without questions or objections.
On the other hand are those that object to the racially offensive comments and argue that while the racists are allowed to continue so should those that object.
It's absolutely right and proper that objections are allowed to continue while racially offensive comments are allowed to continue.
If that leads to conflicting, boring and repetitive threads, I make no apology for that. I am sorry that you are bored and ****ed off, I'm not sorry for adopting, what I believe is a right and proper viewpoint.
